I have successfully created a search text box to jump to a record in a list box.

Now I want to store the information from the selected record as variable data to be used in a series of form text boxes.

Here is the code I have so far:

Private Sub lstLeft_Click()
    Dim strName As String
    Dim strEmpID As String
    Dim intItem As Integer
   
    intItem = 0 To lstLeft.ListCount - 1
   
    If lstLeft.Selected(intItem) Then
           TempVars.Add "strName",lstLeft.Column(2, intItem) & ", " & lstLeft.Column(3, intItem)
           TempVars.Add "strEmpID", lstLeft.Column(1, intItem)
    End If
End Sub

The "intItem = 0 To lstLeft.ListCount - 1" is not correct.

I am only "clicking' on one record and then clicking a command button to navigate to the next form.

Thanks

Glen

  There's no need for the loop then.  The list control itself will contain the value of the bound column.  So you just want to do:

           TempVars.Add "strName",lstLeft.Column(2) & ", " & lstLeft.Column(3)
           TempVars.Add "strEmpID", lstLeft.Column(1)

and watch it; the column property is zero based.
